Pueblo Pushes For DOC Headquarters

PUEBLO — Pueblo City Council President Barb Vidmar believes her city is the right choice for the new state Department of Corrections headquarters and wants legislators to intervene if necessary.

The department has recommended the headquarters stay in Colorado Springs. Pueblo offered the state $1.5 million in tax incentives to build the new headquarters in the city.

Pueblo leaders say their city is the best choice for the new Corrections Department headquarters because Pueblo County is home to the largest share of the department's employees.

Corrections Director Ari Zavaras says one of the reasons for recommending Colorado Springs was a study of the travel costs to each site. He says he'll review any new information from Pueblo officials.

Knowing the DOC, they will take the most expensive way to make the decision. The editorial from the Gazette in Colorado Springs was not a good move on the part of those that want to keep the headquarters there.
Unfortunately the DOC says they will work with the public and work with the legislature and work to keep the public safe and promote programs, but all they really want to do is build their empire and count beds.
They say on their website that they are dedicated to reducing the number of people who go back to prisons, but they go into long term contracts with political contributors and continue to build prisons. Damned the torpedoes and full speed ahead.mpc
